I went back and forth over how I wanted this bedroom to feel. Dark, rich and cave-like (perfect for sleeping late into the morning) or light, airy and restful? In the end, I think we have something in-between.
As for the palette, I knew I wanted to use navy and emerald green. A classic color combination that I can accent with tangerine, coral, violet, turquoise etc... as my mood and trends change.
Some of the images that have inspired the color scheme:
I love the idea of adding a pop of blush to freshen up what could easily become a stuffy palette.
So here's the general idea:
I'm keeping the walls a light taupe, the bedding will be mostly white with a vintage coverlet and green in the pillows to accent. I still need to find the fabric for pillows, sew the pillows, source and probably paint the nightstands, upholster the headboard inset (once I find the right navy fabric), create an art wall (which will include the painting shown on the board - so dreamy and pretty!) sew window panels with the navy trellis fabric and find a few accessories.
This little guest bedroom of mine is shaping up to be quite a project. I'm so excited to see it begin to take shape! First item on the "To Do" list: dress up the lampshades for my vintage lamps with a little trim.
One step at a time!
